Re: James Ackerman, Haig, Warren County, NY
You have the right family.James Ackerman married Olive Bennett.They lived in Haig, Warren County, New York.He was in the 1810 census.The town historian gave me their children.Benajah 1807-1893 married Rhoda Garfield, 1807-1888.Their daughter Phila Ann 1830-19l0 is shown to have married three times, Chester Smith, Chester Bruce, and Lyman Bruce.No children shown. Daughter Lucina married Myron Balcom, children Elmer, Carrie and Leroy.
The other children of James and Olive were Abraham, Samuel, Berentha, Olive, Nathan,Daniel, Henry, Sophia, Jane (my ancestor) and James.I am trying to to connect this Ackerman family to Robert Ackerman and Roxelana Childs, as Jane's family and Robert's family were in Columbia County, Wisconsin and also Oconomowoc, Waukesha County, Wisconsin at the same time and had an Anson, Jane and Roxanne"s in their families.Some of them ended up in the same county in Minnesota. I think that James was probably originally Jacobus and the name was Americanized. Where is your family from?Gladys Woodard Roby
